Claire Rasberry (Raleigh, NC) has always wanted to go to law school since she was in middle school, but she struggled to decide what area she wanted to specialize in. At W&L she declared an international politics major which she thought would sufficiently help prepare her. And then, in her sophomore year, she took LACS 101 and fell in love with Latin American culture. And later on, when she studied abroad in Buenos Aires and also when she taught English to Spanish speakers in Lexington, she fell in love with the Latin American people. She declared a Spanish major in order to communicate better with Latin Americans and gain a better understanding of their fascinating culture. During her senior year she was able to develop a career plan that incorporated her interest in legal studies and her love of all things Latin American: study asylum and refugee law in graduate school and volunteer in the USCRI (US Committee for Refugees and Immigrant) field office in her hometown in Raleigh, North Carolina.
